    Just curious if anyone else is experiencing light leaks on their Surface Pro?

    Got my first unit a few days after launch and had 4 noticeable spots in the bottom right where light was leaking from. Would press on the bezel below each spot, it would go away then come back after releasing. It got a bit worse over the next week (or thought it was getting worse cause it started driving me crazy while I'd work in Photoshop) so I exchanged it for a new one.

    Now the new one has it in two spots in the same area but not as much.

    Should I expect a 'leak free' unit or are others getting the same? Not a cheap device and also hate to keep going back and exchanging if its a common occurrence that I shouldn't be worried about.

    I had this issue and got mine replaced. A day later, the Surface froze and went into a BIOS menu boot loop that I couldn't get out of. I got a refund.

    I'll wait for Microsoft to sort these things out before I consider it again.

    Well looks like I'll have to do a return on this unit too. Opened the kickstand this afternoon, heard crunch sound a small piece fell out from under the flap and now makes grind sound when I open and close the stand.
